Notes & Reviews:
Onyx Classics presents the début recording of a rare, recently restored 1725 Stradivarius cello that resides in a museum in Lisbon. Pavel Gomziakov, a protégé of Maria Joăo Pires, performs Haydn's Cello Concertos in C & D as well as the wonderful slow movement from the composer's Symphony No.13, which has a large solo cello role. Also included is Gomziakov's own arrangement of the Adagio from the C major violin concerto. The sound that this wonderful instrument produces is rich, mellow, powerful and a unique voice and a superb example of Stradivarius's late, golden period.
